“Art is the highest form of hope.”
— Gerhard Richter
So many of us have been working from home for weeks now. Galleries, museums, cafes, and even some parks now have closed. Being an avid believer of seeing art in person, the quarantine we are experiencing collectively has rendered me restless, longing for that exciting inner turmoil evoked when in art’s presence.
Introduction: I am writing this while cooped up in my home, with family, as so many of us are. We are currently undergoing such a surreal experience laden with a variety of strong emotions.

Helene Pavlopoulou is an Athens-based artist whose work pushes the boundaries of traditional perceptions of painting. On Peri-Tecnes we love to explore work by artists who are redefining their primary medium.

First of all, her artistic process is revealed on the canvas. After you take in a work as a whole and begin to notice sections, in one area you may […]
Have you ever walked into a gallery, and upon encountering a work, you got a sense of déjà vu? You see, like many others working in the art field, I have a habit of going about, visiting museums and galleries. This, in turn, leads to the semi-obsessive researching of artists whose works I am less familiar […]
